Favourite Records of the Fall Season

Haim

The tunes you were listening to all summer usually become boring by the time autumn comes. Just like dismissing your summer wardrobe until next year, there is the urge to completely change your playlist as well. It’s the perfect time to become a music-hermit, and have a listen to the fresh releases of the new season. Here’s a taster of what I’ve been listening to in the past weeks.

Kids In Glass Houses – ‘Peace

The fourth album of the Welsh band is one amazing experience of mixed emotions. One song makes you dance on table tops, another leads you to reverie, and the whole thing once again makes you wonder when they’ll finally get their well-deserved breakthrough. Until that arrives, this album remains a hidden secret to the rest of the world.

Outstanding: ‘Peace’, ‘Stormchasers’, ‘Runaways’, ‘Nightcrawler

A Day To Remember – ‘Common Courtesy’

ADTR-CC

ADTR fought and won a legal war against their label to release this record, and the wait was absolutely worth it. Punk-rock and melting ballads work brilliantly together with the heavy breakdowns and metal/hard-core elements. The honesty of the lyrics also has a gripping effect. Now is a great time to start listening to them if you haven`t done so earlier.

Outstanding: ‘Right Back At It Again’, ‘Life @11’, ‘I Remember

The 1975 – ‘The 1975’

Let`s face it, there aren`t many debut albums out there that were as highly anticipated as this one. The 1975 took the world by the storm over a year. Now that the record is finally out and all we have left to do is to enjoy the eighties vibes of this brilliant indie-pop masterpiece…and figure out those lyrics.

Outstanding: ‘Sex’, ‘Heart Out’, ‘Girls’ , ‘Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You

Deaf Havana –‘Old Souls’

Deaf Havana have been through an amazing transformation both musically and professionally – no need to play at Purple Turtle anymore. They are able to give something new with each album cycle yet still keep the signature style that no one else has. The Springsteen influence on this album is clear. Certain songs also resemble to the sound of Parachute (US). It might not be as unique as ‘Fools and Worthless Liars’ was, but it is still able to offer a memorable musical journey to the listener.

Outstanding: ‘Lights’, ‘Subterranean Bullshit Blues’, ‘Mildred (Lost A Friend)’, ‘Kings Road Ghosts

HAIM –‘Days Are Gone’

These sisters are basically the female equivalent of The 1975.They are just as cool and talented, and everyone was excited to hear their debut album as well. It’s an absolute feel-good record. Even just listening to their songs gives you an instant glimpse of 70`s hippy life and endless hours of driving round the coasts of California. Then the album comes to an end and you’re suddenly back to real life again…

Outstanding: ‘Don’t Save Me’, ‘Honey & I’, ‘The Wire
